As you may know, I’ve been devoting my research energies to an artist named Elizabeth Okie Paxton. So little is known about her, and only 4 works are in public collections. I have been focusing on a messy, feminine, sensual painting called The Breakfast Tray, made about 1910.
For those of you who can, there’s a great opportunity to see the painting coming up. Normally in a private collection, it’s emerging into the Art Institute of Chicago in “Art and Appetite,” an exhibit running from November 12, 2013 – January 27, 2014.
If you are able to go, let me know how The Breakfast Tray looks in a grand museum!
